Read on to learn about just one adult waiting on a match in Friend 2 Friend’s Community Program. Then apply to volunteer.
Sophie is a 61. She lives independently in Quincy. She enjoys singing and playing the piano (which she learned as a girl), and adores live music – especially orchestral concerts and musicals.
When she was a child, she suffered a traumatic brain injury, which resulted in developmental delays. Because of this, she notes, it can take her a moment to process information. Says her caseworker, “She’s articulate, and quite friendly.” Sophie adds that she relishes company but rarely has it, so she turned to Friend 2 Friend for support.
Her ideal Friend: Someone to join her for a cup of coffee or some window-shopping. Music lovers most welcome!
